Sunday, January 21, 2018

Hello, friends! As always, happy Sunday!! For those of y'all that don't know me personally, I'm here to admit that I am a sucker for online shopping. Shocker, right! Some might even say I'm slightly addicted... But I'm the kind of online shopper that doesn't buy 80% of the things she puts in her cart because I'm indecisive, and let's be real, just looking is half the fun! Today I'm here to share 3 smaller online stores & 2 that you might have forgotten about (all of which I absolutely adore) as well as some tips for shopping online.

17 Things I Learned in 2017

Sunday, December 31, 2017

Holy cow, I'm seriously in awe of this past year, you guys. I feel like life is constantly amazing me, but when I say 2017 amazed me, I am 100% behind that statement. This year was the year of new experiences. It was the year of firsts, the year of going out of my comfort zone, and the year of personal growth. Gah I'm getting emotional just thinking about how everything that has happened this year has shaped me into the gal I am today.  Reflecting on this past year has really made me realize how faithful our Heavenly Father is. I look back on all the things that once worried me, that once weighed me down, and it's like they've all been taken away. He is SO faithful, you guys. All the glory to God. Today I want to share 17 things I learned in 2017.

Finding Motivation When You Feel Like Blah

Sunday, December 10, 2017

Good morning, beautiful friends. Oh my goodness, first semester is almost over!! Senior year is FLYING by. The end of semesters are always the hardest parts of the year. Sometimes I find it hard to really concentrate and get studying when the excitement of break & Christmas is in the back of my head. Let's be real, we're all in Christmas mode! I can definitely relate to having a hard time finding motivation for school or work related tasks, especially during the holiday season.  Today I'm here to help you say goodbye to that lazy mindset that we tend to fall into and hello to one that says, "LET'S GET THIS DONE."


The Ultimate Gift Guide: 30 gifts under $30

Sunday, December 3, 2017

It is officially December, which means I am in full Christmas mode! YAY! Oh my goodness, this time of the year is the absolute greatest. There are so many wonderful things in store for the days ahead. One of the most special parts of Christmastime for me is that it is the season of gift giving. I love spreading cheer by finding my friends and family something special that I know they will like. Gift giving is definitely not the focus of the season, but I think it is the perfect way to remind your friends and family that they are awesome!! Last year I did a gift guide featuring 25 gifts under $25... but of course I had to change things up just a wee bit, so today, I've brought you 30 gift ideas under $30. 
 p.s. they're organized from lowest to highest in price so feel free to scroll around;)
